• The content of recurrent dreams in young adolescents 

    Gauchat, Aline; Séguin, Jean; McSween-Cadieux, Esther; Zadra, Antonio (Elsevier, 2015-12)
    Studies on children’s recurrent dreams have been largely anecdotal and based on adults’ recollections of dreams experienced during childhood. We collected 102 reports of recurrent dreams from a sample of young adolescents aged between 11 and 15 ...
  • Rapport scientifique de la cartographie des anciens cours d’eau, lignes de creux et des bassins versants de l'île de Montréal 

    Scientific report of the cartographic data of the island of Montreal's former watercourses, thalwegs, and watersheds

  • A longitudinal twin study of callous-unemotional traits during childhood 

    Longitudinal twin callous-unemotional, 1
    Henry, Jeffrey; Dionne, Ginette; Viding, Essi; Petitclerc, Amélie; Feng, Bei; Vitaro, Frank; Brendgen, Mara; Tremblay, Richard Ernest; Boivin, Michel (American Psychological Association, 2018-05)
    Previous research indicates that genetic factors largely account for the stability of callous-unemotional (CU) traits in adolescence. However, the genetic-environmental etiology of the development of CU traits has not been extensively investigated in ...
  • Common genetic variants influence human subcortical brain structures 

    Hibar, Derrek P.; Stein, Jason L.; Renteria, Miguel E.; Arias-Vasquez, Alejandro; Desrivières, Sylvane; Jahanshad, Neda (Nature Research, 2015-04-09)
    The highly complex structure of the human brain is strongly shaped by genetic influences. Subcortical brain regions form circuits with cortical areas to coordinate movement, learning, memory and motivation, and altered circuits can lead to abnormal ...
  • Early warm-rewarding parenting moderates the genetic contributions to callous-unemotional traits in childhood 

    Warm-rewarding genetic callous-unemotional
    Henry, Jeffrey; Dionne, Ginette; Viding, Essi; Vitaro, Frank; Brendgen, Mara; Tremblay, Richard Ernest; Boivin, Michel (Wiley, 2018-04-23)
    Background Previous gene–environment interaction studies of CU traits have relied on the candidate gene approach, which does not account for the entire genetic load of complex phenotypes. Moreover, these studies have not examined the role of positive ...
  • ENIGMA and the individual : Predicting factors that affect the brain in 35 countries worldwide 

    Thompson, Paul M.; Andreassen, Ole A.; Conrod, Patricia; Imagen Consortium (Elsevier, 2017-01-15)
    In this review, we discuss recent work by the ENIGMA Consortium (http://enigma.ini.usc.edu) – a global alliance of over 500 scientists spread across 200 institutions in 35 countries collectively analyzing brain imaging, clinical, and genetic data. ...
  • Genomic architecture of human neuroanatomical diversity 

    Toro, Roberto; Poline, Jean-Baptiste; Conrod, Patricia; Imagen Consortium (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-08)
    Human brain anatomy is strikingly diverse and highly inheritable: genetic factors may explain up to 80% of its variability. Prior studies have tried to detect genetic variants with a large effect on neuroanatomical diversity, but those currently ...
  • The impact of uncertainty in agriculture 

    Godefroy, Raphaël; Lewis, Joshua (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-08)
    Income uncertainty in the rural economy is widely considered an important impediment to growth in poor countries. This paper uses a rich dataset on productivity, land use, and output for 17 different crops across 500,000 plots of land in 87 countries ...
  • Precision may harm: The comparative statics of imprecise judgement 

    Horan, Sean; Manzini, Paola (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-08)
    We consider an agent whose information about the objects of choice is imperfect in two respects: first, their values are perceived with ‘error’; and, second, the realised values cannot be discriminated with absolute ‘precision’. Reasons for imprecise ...
  • The birth of the congressional clinic 

    Godefroy, Raphaël (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2018-08)
    This paper studies the impact of mortality in the districts/states represented in key congressional groups (i.e. committees, subcommittees, and parties) on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) allocation of medical research funds across diseases, ...
